Anyhow have a gander at theae two for comparison i did today... from what i can assume these have been used in charter for 15 years old mate says...

Anyhow the two sets of pics of FH's - surprised to say the least at the outcomes - only two line roller bearings replaced. Putrid mess of grease though - the camera sort of cleans up the actual horrors makes it look bearable.

Anyhow some well "well... well" used FH's.

Aaaaand the other.

In the end i scrubbed the cowel plates to rid as much green corrosion from them and again painted on a mix inside but this time with lanolin and corrosion x - also did the outer side to allow to soak in. Heres hoping that it stalls further green growth.

Not really into old reels for their own sake myself, but found your post and photography a good read and very informative - thanks for sharing.

What do you lube the open bearings and main shaft with?
I have been using a light Shimano grease and a few drops of Shimano oil.

I roughly fill half to quarter each side of the bearing with Inox MX6 and a good couple of drops of MX5 oil and sometimes a mix of high pressure surfactants.

The pinion and shaft is just Inox MX5 oil - and again age depending some further high pressure lubes go in to compensate for inner pinion floating shaft bearing surface wear.

And the box of bits that comes with this FH Stradic - cant wait to box it and safely store it away. In time i think a glass cabinet will be on the cards.

Pretty important to have it complete ����

I got the 5000 size in that model. Its been a good reel.
In the last 10 years i have never taken a reel apart or got one serviced before until ast year, I used my stradic as a guinea pig to pull it apart.

I think its going to serve me another 10 years now

Most manufacturers dont know how important it is to keep their older reels going and to ensure parts availability - its more important to keep old 'heritage' reels in the public spotlight than try to force this new DohDohDohDoh on everyone every 6 to 12 months now.

Its my choice to fish with older reels (like yourself) and i honestly cant speak higher of their qualities - how that translates to today's offerings is subjective - but one would hope that the old reels design and longevity qualities would've been passed on like regular old DNA.

Sadly most manufacturers dont and or wouldnt bother as they're trying to capture new market's and impressionable younger fishers with looks and mindless technology jargon.

Its so true.

I had an old model saltist 40 overhead. Due to lack of maintenance it was a DohDohDohDohDoh to ooen up. I ended up having to drill a couple of side plate screws out.

Called diawa and ordered some more. After getting put on backorder and waiting they eventually told me parts for that model are obsolete!

A guy there (was his first week on the job) tracked down one that was out the back thats been broken and got the screws out and sent them to me free of charge. Without them the reel would have been useless.

I must admit when I see what looks like clean examples of some reels i really like (Rarenium FA is one) come up for sale im very tempted!

Was that Taka or George? Wouldn't know who's there now - been a long time since I've called...

No school like "putting a little oil or grease" on fine dissimilar metal threads - for the future...

Had another look inside - and broke out the engineering paper.

Played around with the main big end worm shaft bushing and centering it and removing all the slop from it and the body - not an easy task but got it in the end.

Basically radially shimmed the white bushing with that brass paper in the end and all slop accounted for.
